[Feature Request] Direction Animation Source Compatibility for Weapons
Feedback, NormalPublic


Despite the Model Config BIStudio page claiming the "direction" animation source to be compatible with "Any" simulation class, when used on weapons, the source does not return a directional value. Instead, it returns a value starting at zero that steadily increases to one before returning to zero again and starting the process over. This causes any compass style readouts on weapons to spin endlessly on the weapons they belong to.

The wiki is wrong, "direction" is only compatible with "Transport" vehicles. The wiki description also says "The orientation of the vehicle", a weapon is not a vehicle.
How it returns a steadily increasing value I don't understand, it shouldn't exist at all.

Added "direction" source to Weapon, please report if it works, I'm not testing it.
